Dr. Darius Pierko, Conemaugh Physician Group – Primary Care, has joined the Somerset practice of Dr. Ann Smith.

Dr. Pierko, who was born in Poland, is a graduate of The University of Maine and the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford, Maine. He completed Fellowship training in Neuromuscular Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulate Medicine at Eastern Maine Medical Center, where he also completed a Family Medicine Residency Program. Dr. Pierko is board certified in Family Medicine and Neuromuscular Medicine.

Dr. Pierko comes to the Somerset region after working most recently at Mercer Primary Care in Mercer, Pennsylvania.

“I am looking forward to living in this region,” says Dr. Pierko whose wife’s family is from Pennsylvania. “We enjoy outdoor activities in both the summer and winter so this area has a lot to offer.”

Dr. Ann Smith will be moving from the Somerset area in September and Dr. Pierko will take over the practice which is located at 339 W. Union Street in Somerset. “Dr. Smith has been in practice here for 14 years. She is very beloved by her patients and will be missed,” adds Dr. Pierko. “I wish her well and welcome this opportunity to take care of her patients.”

Patients of the practice will have an opportunity to meet Dr. Pierko at a Farewell Open House for Dr. Smith on Friday, August 31, 2012 between 4:00 and 6:00pm. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call (814) 444-8300.
